Hello Meli, and welcome to BuzzMusic. We loved your latest hit "Fresh Like Summer." It's such a refreshing song that invigorates the listener. What feeling did you want to present in this song? Thank you so much for having me! The song was written with my amazing co-writers Mar and Pablo Valda to capture the feeling of freedom I get in my favorite time of the year: Summer. Life by the beach always seems to move at a slower pace and I get into this "Feel Good" trance I don't want to wake up from. We loved the different elements you incorporated into "Fresh Like Summer." There is this funky pop vibe present on the track. How were you able to great such a synergy of sound on this song? The strongest element of this song was definitely the bass line! It had to be groovy! I worked with my friend genius producer Pablo Valda and we wanted to create that ”Feel good” vibe with the sounds, textures and unique sound elements (like the sound of a can opening at 00:08) What type of messages do you feel it's important to incorporate into your music? I’m a true believer of love, self-acceptance, care for others, letting your heart lead you through this crazy journey called life, and never giving up on your dreams. I believe that as an artist I have the responsibility to speak up with my songs and help others. What has the Los Angeles music scene done for your music? Do you feel the city inspires your music? LA is the land of my dreams. Ever since I was a little girl I dreamed of living in this big city. This city has shaped me as an artist and a human being. I’ve met so many wonderful people that have helped me tell my story. It has taught me to love my art and be resilient in difficult times.
LA will always inspire me. I’ll always be a dreamer and I like to express my feelings with different sounds I find along these streets. What can we expect to see from you throughout the rest of 2020?
I’ll be releasing more music both in Spanish and English. I’m originally from Costa Rica so expect lots of feel-good music that will help you go through these difficult times. I believe that’s my mission in life, to create music that will shine a little light for everyone.
